Atrial Natriuretic Peptide
Atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) is a 28-amino acid peptide that is synthesized, stored, and released by atrial myocytes in response to atrial distension, angiotensin II stimulation, endothelin, and sympathetic stimulation (beta-adrenoceptor mediated). Therefore, elevated levels of ANP are found during hypervolemic states (elevated blood volume), which occurs in congestive heart failure. ANP is first synthesized and stored in cardiac myocytes as prepro-ANP, which is then cleaved to pro-ANP and finally to ANP. ANP is the biologically active peptide.
